Paul R. Berger (born 8 May 1963) is a Professor in Electrical & Computer Engineering at Ohio State University and Physics (by courtesy)..[1], and also a Distinguished Visiting Professor at Tampere University in Finland.

Berger was named a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) in 2011[2] and was elected into the IEEE Electron Devices Society Board of Governors in 2020[3]


Berger received his Bachelor of Science, Master of Science, and Ph.D in Electrical and Computer Engineering from University of Michigan in 1985, 1987 and 1990 respectively under the supervision of Pallab Bhattacharya. In 1987, Berger co-discovered the self-assembly of III-V semiconductor quantum dots during molecular-beam epitaxy strain engineering with Pallab Bhattachrya for the formation of high-quality quantum dot lasers device manufacturing. This is widely used in industry today and has made optical communication and optical networking practical for many applications, including optical data links in enterprise networks and data centers.[4]


Berger won a National Science Foundation CAREER Awards (1996)[5], a DARPA ULTRA Sustained Excellence Award (1998)[6], a Faculty Diversity Excellence Award (2009)[7], and Outstanding Engineering Educator for State of Ohio (2014)[8]
